Manchester United needed goals from Falcao and Angel Di Maria to pick up all three points, and faced a nervy final few minutes as Everton came ever so close to scoring, only kept out by De Gea’s blinding performance.

The failure to stay compact meant Everton forced De Gea into a penalty save at the end of the first half as well as a pair of brilliant dives as time wound down at the end of the match.
